Categories of Governor

There are four different categories of Governor at Belvidere School:

Parent Governors (4)
Parent Governors are elected by the parents of all students who are registered at the school. When a vacancy occurs, parents are informed by email or a letter from the Headteacher is sent home and nominations are invited.

Staff Governors (1)
The staff governor is elected by his/her colleagues. The Headteacher is also a Governor.

Co-opted Governors (11)
Co-opted governors are appointed by the Local Governing body and Trust because they come from a specialist group, such as the business community or because they possess a particular skill which can contribute to the governing body.

All Governors have the same responsibilities and an equal say on the Governing body
